“I’d like to take the opportunity to thank my clients for allowing and trusting me to take the journey with them through their past life experience. It is a true honour.” Paul Barrett

 


Meeting Paul has been one of the most important experiences of my life.

He guided me through a dark and difficult period. Together we looked back at my past, making me understand who I am, and where I’ve come from.  Using a range of modern and classic therapy techniques, Paul helped me out depression, bringing a healthy balance to my life.

It’s only after seeing Paul that I feel truly alive – living and enjoying my life properly. He gave me an understanding of emotional intelligence I never knew existed.  I have now made peace with my past, live in the present and look forward to the future.

Thank you Paul, forever.

Richard, London


I just wanted to say I hope you are well and thanks for the EMDR. Now it’s been quite a few months since I’ve had it and I can see a huge change in myself.

I still think I have loads of work to do but I just feel less attached to the issues I had and feel so much better about myself and more optimistic about the future! It’s a good space to be in.

Emma, London


I have just settled into my new place and I wanted to say thank you again for all your help. You have been an enormous help over the last couple of years and I will continue to use your words of wisdom and stress coping techniques whenever I start to feel overwhelmed.

I have not only benefited from your expert advice, but my family and friends have as well. You have helped me to set me up for success in whatever my future holds and I cannot thank you enough.

Vanessa, London


Paul was recommended to me several years ago and we agreed to do some work together. He has been invaluable in my recovery and healing and has selflessly been available and supportive ever since.  His approach is gentle and nourishing and he has walked the walk, so I trust what he tells me. He’s not quoting from textbooks but from his own real life experience which is absolutely priceless.  I will continue to work under Paul’s guidance in the future and very much look forward to continuing my journey of growth with his guidance.

I have completed a course of psychological therapy with Paul.

Although at the start of therapy I insisted that I did not wish to explore my past experiences and my alcohol consumption – it became quickly apparent that these were the two interlinked issues that required specific attention.

It is a great testament to Paul that he was able to draw out my past experiences, allowing me to better understand what had happened and the choices that I made.

Paul was able to do this by establishing a sense of safety and trust during the consultations, which resulted in my being able to fully explore my life-experiences.

Over the course of the therapy we were able to easily and freely discuss a wide variety of issues including the significance of past traumas, interpersonal relationships and past decisions.

For me, the end result in therapy has helped me to put past events in a more understandable context, allowing me to break free from self-limiting entanglements, putting me in a better place to cope with the present and to make plans for the future.

Martin, Barnes


Thank you for being a steady presence in my life for over two years. You have helped me work through all the nasty bits so that the light can shine in. Thank you for never making me feel stupid, or getting angry, even when I shouted at you and answered you back.

Roxanne, Notting Hill


After working with you and clearing a lifetime of ‘un-protested’ bad feeling and anger, I now have an open heart and have got married to my long-term partner. It was an incredible journey we travelled together. My husband and I can’t thank you enough.

Jenny, St John’s Wood


Paul was terrific and has a natural gift for this work.

Bridget, Knightsbridge


Paul was recommended to me by my GP and together we worked through my childhood difficulties and, to my surprise, childhood abuse. As memories returned seemingly from nowhere, you guided me through processing and owning my feelings and anger. Previously, I could not stay in a relationship and I ended up destroying them all; now I have the gift of choice in my relationships and life. I cannot thank him enough.

Freddy, Devon


Paul created a safe and trusting environment for me to work in.

Norah, St John’s Wood


I never felt comfortable in my own skin. Paul became a strong, kind father figure to me and taught me about boundaries and how to use them. He enabled me to find my voice and how to say no comfortably rather than saying yes to everyone and everything and then getting angry and resentful. He gave me the tools for life that my parents never did. He is a lovely man and I can’t thank him enough for giving me a life.

Cecilia, Switzerland


After the death of my father I went into meltdown and could not function. Paul enabled me to say goodbye, let go and move on with my life. You were a bright star in a dark sky for me.

Jonathan, Cork


Thank you just does not seem enough. Once a beaten, battered and helpless wife with no self-worth left whatsoever, Paul gave me the strength and tools to become a free and happy woman once again. Without his help, support, empathy, kindness, strength and guidance I feel would not have got out alive. I could not recommend him highly enough.

Alexandra, Knightsbridge


Paul helped me change my life and I can’t thank him enough.

Elizabeth, Chiswick


Suffering from what I now know to be PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) some time after a road accident, I was experiencing flashbacks, loss of sleep and panic attacks. Paul was recommended to me and after a visit or two he used a technique called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing). He was straightforward, honest and direct, and we got on with the task at hand. It did the trick! It was a very powerful and freeing process – thank you.

Joanna, Richmond


Thank you for shining a light in a very dark place and time in my life. Your light guided me into a bright and sunny life and I can’t thank you enough.

George, Hampstead


Paul is really brilliant – the right mix of gentle and firm.

Kristina, Chelsea
